There’ll be a fab raffle and sales on the night: we’ve had some brilliant pledges of record bundles from eminent labels, a hat-maker beloved by the stars, fashion accessories, art and craft makers and a pop-up meal for two! Please be sure to bring some cash for the raffle tickets.
Proceeds from your tickets, the raffle and any art and record sales will go to trusted organisations and charities in the affected countries, with a focus on supporting women and children especially (links below)
Once the immediate media coverage goes off the boil, it’s all too easy to forget that this is where the real journey to longer-term, sustainable assistance and solutions begins. With your help we hope to raise money to support communities in the regions in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi affected by the recent cyclones to rebuild and future-proof homes and infrastructure devastated by the storms and flooding, to safeguard and improve health provision, educational facilities, and counter land erosion, flooding and other climate-related and environmental threats.
Listen back to The Outerglobe recently broadcasted on Resonance FM with Catherine Plant – main organiser – and Malika Beraud of Rachel and Malika’s who has donated to the raffle and will have a stall full of goodies, in conversation with Debbie Golt. You can find out more about the event and the recipients and hear some fabuloso related music. www.mixcloud.com/resonance/the-outerglobe-30th-may-2019
